minnesota governor tim pa-- pa-- tim pawlenty. in addition to governor snoozy, there's george w. bush's budget director, rob portman, and then what the "times" refers to as the two dark horse choices, paul ryan, the guy who became nationally famous when he suggested taking away medicare from old people and giving them coupons instead, and also louisiana governor bobby jindal. yesterday, he joins bobby jindal in louisiana for fund-raisers. the beltway press describing him as buzzed about as one of romney's most visible supporters and as a vp short lister. >> i'm bobby jindal, governor of louisiana. >> according to the washington post, bobby jindal's stock is on the rise. the paper extolling the many conservative virtues that make him a possible vice presidential choice, like for example, criticizing president obama. republican voters love that. and fighting with democrats on tv. that's a must. also, he is not old. mossel tav. and there's the rolling back of medical care for the poor and uninsured in his state. maybe that could cancel out romney care in massachusetts? in fact, it would
presidential election, george h.w. bush released 14 years of his tax returns going back to 1973. there's no exact number of years that is the standard. but when mitt romney says the president is that you don't have to release much in the way of tax returns, just a couple years will do it, that's not true. the obama campaign released this chart this week showing how many years worth of tax returns the last four presidents released as they campaigned for office. they're putting this out because they think mr. romney has been wrong when he asserted he's following precedent. he released eight years. george w. bush released ten. clinton released 12 years. poppy bush released 14 years. then they added on another guy, the last blue column, that is george romney, who is just a candidate for president. he of course never became president, but he is mitt romney's dad. so what's normal in presidential politics is to release many years of your tax returns. the romney campaign if they cont wanted to could come back and say all those people who became president and my dad released more than five yea
released. barack obama, six years and bill clinton, 11 years and george w. bush nine years. is he playing into the hands? >> yes, he is. on a different reason of transparency. mitt romney is different. he is saying to the american people, vote for me because i'm a successful businessman and i can turn around an economy economy. all we are saying is look at your personal economics. you are talking about what you want to do to the american economy and yet, we're seeing evidence that you moved money overseas. we are seeing evidence that you had shell corporations in the caymans and bahamas. that is very material to mitt romney's own argument as to why he should be president. that is why it is more than are you being transparent. is mitt romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show h

that will george w. bush got in the past. you're seeing that in some of the analysis that conservatives are giving of the romney campaign. we're being far more honest about romney than we were about bush. if you were the romney campaign, i'd say i will release my paper trail when the president relations his. where is his college transcripts? where is all the transparency what he did before he was in the illinois state sneempl are you kidding me. >>> margie, you believe that that is a fair equation here on one breath, you say that governor romney needs to be more transpare transparent. he is running for the highest office in is this country. the american people need to know more about his tax returns and you are saying this. aim not saying this. this is what you're saying but you want to flip the corner and then bring up the president's college transcript. that's your -- >> the reason -- i don't really. >> those things are equal here? >> the reason why is because i frankly don't trust -- this whole thing about his tax returns i think for democrats is a red herring. this is about transparent say. th
. but george w. bush gave eight years of tax returns. john kerry gave 20. my god, i can't even believe he saved 20 years. president obama gave 12 years. jonathan, that's the point. i -- how do you graciously, if you're mitt romney, give in here? >> well, there's no gracious way to give in anymore, because he's had his back up against the wall for so long. but there still is the opportunity to give in, get it out there and move on for him. i mean, you know, those of us who have, you know, gone to kind of crisis communications 101 have taken those -- 101 course of crisis communications understand that you've got something that you don't think people are going to like, the best thing you can do is get it out there and get it over with. meanwhile, mitt romney, you notice, continues to dance around the subject and dance around the subject, giving us lots to talk about on cable tv, speculating what's in it, speculating what might be in it. it's fun for us. >> one night of aggressive hits on the low tax rate in 2009 or whatever it might be and then you move on. >> look, it's got to be -- it's definite

actually, i don't think george w. bush cares all that butch this, but i think it has helped his post presidential image that he has stayed behind the scenes. he's not been critical in any way, shape, or form of barack obama and not tried to draw attention to himself. this is someone who spent eight very controversial years in office, left office quite unpopular. the way he has handled himself since leaving office, he has done himself some political good. i don't think that's why he did it or that he cares all that much. >> then the question is what role will he play, if any in, tampa and what role his father might play. chris, thank you so much. we'll you see you tomorrow from washington. follow the show online and on twitter @mitchell reports. my friend tamron hall has a look what's next. >> following a lot of big news. hour. rush limbaugh claims the romney campaign is following his strategy and points to the comments made by governor john sununu saying he needs to learn how to be an american. we're waiting to hear what governor romney has to say as he holds a town hall in ohio. >>>

think of as the in voters, voters who voted for george w. bush during the 2000 and voted for obama in 2008, some high income voters who didn't like what obama was saying about the $250,000 expending the bush tax cuts. i found voters who are saying i think i might go for mitt romney this year after voting for obama four years ago. the reason i wanted to talk to hispanic voters is because what's interesting and happening in the polls in colorado is as mitt romney is gaining among independentents you see obama widening his lead on latino voters. this is on the votes in black month about limiting deportation for young people. i wanted to go see if that has sort of ignited enthusiasm on hispanic voters and i was surprised to see not at all. i found voters who voted for the first time in 2008, really exspite to be a part of history and has been absolutely deflated and unexcited about what obama has done. when you talk to hispanic voters in colorado immigration is not the first thing that comes up at least in my conversations, it was the economy. and on that, they're just as disappointed
out to you, george w. bush released ten years, george h.w. bush released 14 years and bob dole released 30 years. mitt romney has only released one. how is that the standard? >> well good morning to you as well norah. as to the two years, of course he released one year going back and also the estimates that he has for this year. that's two preliminarily on the second year. >> we don't know how much he paid in taxes on 2011. >> not yet. but he said he would release those going forward. as to the standard that you mentioned, the practice has varied. you cited some examples of some. but there's others who have only gone back a few years. the larger point is this. there is no claim or no credible indication that mitt romney's done anything wrong. he's within the range of past practice and custom. but number two, why is the media focused on this issue, 10 15-year-old tax returns or college transcripts, when we should be focused on the large issues and the main issues. >> is governor rick perry a member of media? >> i'm sorry. >> governor rick perry is not a mem
w. bush making it perfectly clear he has no interest in joining the public discourse. in a recent interview, mr. bush talked about his role as former president and why he's staying out of the public eye. >> i think it's bad for the presidency to have former presidents believe yating, opining, or telling people how it ought to be done. eight years was awesome, and i was famous and i was powerful, but i have -- i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i -- i don't want to undermine our president. whoever is president. and a former president can do that. and i think it's bad for the presidency itself. either you're in or out of politics, peter. and i've chosen to be out. i mean you can't be halfway. you know, and given the environment today, with all the blogs and this that and the other i mean it's like, you know, i told -- i -- pretty unattractive metaphor, but i said i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm -- you know, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. but, you know, he can do well without me. >>
comments from former president george w. bush. he doesn't give many interviews and in an interview with the institute, he says why. he said he wants to fade from public view and public life as much as it is possible for any former president. >> but i really don't want to be in the public eye anymore. and i feel a certain sense of liberation not being out there. >> you like it better. >> i really do. eight years was awesome. and i was famous and i was powerful but i have no desire for fame and power anymore. >> the form he president said part of his motivation in wanting to fade from the scene is not to be seen trying to interfere in any way the current president. >>> a warming atlantic ocean has taken its toll again on one of greenland's giant glaciers. a piece twice the size of the island of manhattan has broken free. scientists have been watching a crack in the glacier for years. nasa took a satellite photo as it started to break off days ago. two years ago a piece twice the size of this one broke off. scientists will be watching carefully again to see if this is the end of it fo

's a fact not joined on mitt romney. roland martin and former chief strategist for george w. bush mark mckenna join us "outfront" tonight. i want to play a clip of an impressive attack by ohio's own john boehner. let's take a listen. >> i think the president's attack on the private sector in america is exactly what's wrong with this administration. doesn't give a damn about middle class americans who are out there looking for work. what he's trying to do is distract the american people in order to win his own reelection. >> tell us how you really feel there, john. let's talk about the importance of ohio. take a look at the current cnn electoral map. in this scenario, obama seems likely to start with 247 electoral votes. romney expected to get 206. 85 are a toss-up. but suddenly ooeb's been five electoral votes of winning. roland, there's a reason obama has made eight trips to ohio so far this year. romney's made ten. what do you think president obama needs to do to win over the main street middle class voters in the buckeye state? >> actually if you go back to 2009, the two states he was
by four. george w. bush won they by eight. he wants to narrow the gap or not lose badly. he wants to keep the narrow among seniors. they think this is certainly a way to do that. >> you know, erin, my dad was a pretty conservative republican, but the one thing he liked was medicare. he worked all his life and he said finally i get something for all the money i paid into the government. medicare is really popular among people over 65. they really, really like it. and now to come along and threaten to cut it or turn it into a voucher program could be political suicide for the republicans. do you sense biden is out there sort of like advertising what is to come, a preview of a movie coming? >> absolutely. and president obama is going to florida on thursday and friday for a couple events, and i expect that he'll talk about it then. look, as chris mentioned, this is an important thing with senior citizens and as you mentioned as well, in florida, and i think that's the reason paul ryan is not as hot a commodity in terms of the veep stakes because so many republicans i have spoken to said if he
. but rush was never outraged, nor should he have been, that george w. bush smoked a little weed when he was a young man, and wouldn't ever, ever answer questions about whether he used cocaine, but did admit to being an alcoholic. so smoking a little weed, maybe doing cocaine, and actually being an alcoholic are completely cool with rush, as long as it's a republican we're talking about. but barack obama smoking a little weed should be something that is used against him, should disqualify him from the presidency. rush is, of course, lying about this. rush doesn't think there's anything wrong with smoking a little weed in college. rush completely understands that choice, just as he understands much more intense relationships with illicit drugs, like his own relationship with drugs. rush limbaugh is a drug addict. a drug addict whose habit got him in trouble with the law. a drug addict whose high-priced lawyers made a deal to get him into rehab, to avoid prosecution on a drug felony that he was arrested for. rush limbaugh hates barack obama. he hates him. his hatred infuses every syllable
lie. >> and the big panel weighs in on george w. bush's jaw-dropping new interview. >> eight years was awesome. and you know, i was famous and i was powerful. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. another day, another new plan of attack for the romney campaign. yesterday, it was the dart board mentality. today, it's the kitchen sink approach. >> his priority is not creating jobs for you. his priority is trying to keep his own diop job, and that's why he's going to lose it. >> he's out of touch, out of ideas, out of excuses. that's why in november we have to get him out of office. >> he divides us. he tried to diminish those who have been
